    I have been working at Wells Fargo full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Huge emphasis on work / life balance. No sales goals, but encouraged when working hard. Incredible sales training.

    Cons

    Negative connotation in the media right now, however, overcoming it. A select group of individuals ruined the reputation of a company, unfortunately.

    Advice to Management

    Consistency, please. My department is fairly new, but we are constantly readjusting and realigning things. I know it's for the betterment of our center and jobs, but it can be difficult to keep up with!

    I have been working at Wells Fargo full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Very great position for entry level leadership. This position will teach you how to onboard new tellers, coach your teller team and ensure the success of your team. this position requires you and the rest of the teller team to report to the service manager.

    Cons

    Wells Fargo is a great company to be employed with, however, the leadership in management can make your job a joy to have or an everyday annoyance. I've worked for amazing managers that actually motivate your professional growth. I've also worked for managers who through their actions could care less for their employees or their growth. Only the customer, the survey scores and conversation starter numbers is what they cared about. No empathy. No professional growth coaching. Nothing.

    I worked at Wells Fargo full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Lots of room for growth. Many departments to chose from and find where your talents lie. Encouragement to advance and open sharing of upcoming available positions (in some departments). Generous time off for seasoned employees. I’ve had wonderful managers in multiple positions,

    Cons

    Some departments do not share job posting opportunities. Others share quite openly. Small raises within the same position. Only way to advance is to move around.

    I worked at Wells Fargo full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Diversity initiatives through community groups, Educational component into financial industry when hired as a banker

    Cons

    Terrible culture driven by number of checking accounts per day vs doing what is right for the client. Asked to open accounts and transfer funds from existing accounts to push multiple accounts. Branches are held to number of checking account goals.

    Advice to Management

    Focus more on quality over quantity products across the board. Unnecessary products for clients are closed and questioned by client, and wastes time of employees and clients.
